Washington Capitals vs Pittsburgh Penguins Prediction

The plus money with Washington is tempting given what the Caps have done on the road all season long, but the fact is that Washington is slumping right now, losing 5 of their last 6 away from home lately, and Washington has just been faltering for the most part as of late. I think that home ice is the edge here as Pittsburgh gets the win and a key two points in this one.
